Found one error on the installer that doesn't affect the daily usage on paldo in anyway but it will give headaches to anyone who tries to remove an older kernel

The spec of the kernels on upkg say on postrm that it should delete on the file menu.lst from the title paldo.... etc $VERSION ... etc until the line savedefault

But the installer doesn't add on the menu.lst the line savedefault on the paldo entry...

This will make that on future remove of an older kernel the menu.lst comes from this:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
timeout 5
setkey y z
setkey z y
setkey Y Z
setkey Z Y
setkey equal parenright
setkey parenright parenleft
setkey parenleft asterisk
setkey doublequote at
setkey plus bracketright
setkey minus slash
setkey slash ampersand
setkey ampersand percent
setkey percent caret
setkey underscore question
setkey question underscore
setkey semicolon less
setkey less numbersign
setkey numbersign backslash
setkey colon greater
setkey greater bar
setkey asterisk braceright
default saved

title paldo stable (linux 2.6.27.6-paldo1-x86_64)
kernel /boot/linux-2.6.27.6-paldo1-x86_64 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/d493b094-1cef-4633-b62c-955b00b6a44a resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/da9681a6-4c6b-49f4-bf96-8c4f2ba9422e vga=0x317

title paldo stable (linux 2.6.27.7-paldo1-x86_64)
kernel /boot/linux-2.6.27.7-paldo1-x86_64 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/d493b094-1cef-4633-b62c-955b00b6a44a resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/da9681a6-4c6b-49f4-bf96-8c4f2ba9422e vga=0x317
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.27.7-paldo1-x86_64
savedefault


To this:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
timeout 5
setkey y z
setkey z y
setkey Y Z
setkey Z Y
setkey equal parenright
setkey parenright parenleft
setkey parenleft asterisk
setkey doublequote at
setkey plus bracketright
setkey minus slash
setkey slash ampersand
setkey ampersand percent
setkey percent caret
setkey underscore question
setkey question underscore
setkey semicolon less
setkey less numbersign
setkey numbersign backslash
setkey colon greater
setkey greater bar
setkey asterisk braceright
default saved






This will amke on the next reboot the grub fails sayin it can't boot, of course because there is no entry from the system and you'll have to set on grub manually on the next startup... ... and it might be confused for some people

REQUEST: Update the installer to add savedefault to the end of the paldo kernel entry during its installation...
